The Attorney General’s Office announced Thursday that its Public Prosecutor ordered the detention of the Director of the Rifi (Rural) Bank, pending investigation.
The detention is based on charges of disposing of 4 million dinars from the bank’s funds. The move, the report says, is in violation of the rules of managing public money and contributes to the realization of illegal material benefits for others.
The detainee is accused of making available the LD 4 million to the company despite it not handing over the movables contracted to be supplied since 2018. The Attorney General’s Office said the prosecution continues to investigate several bank officials regarding their involvement in the case.
